Spike TV, which is part of MTV, is about to begin production of “Repo Games,” a quiz show hosted by repo men and starring hapless car owners who fall behind on their payments, according to MTV spokesman David Schwarz.
But all is not lost. On this show, they’ll have one last chance to save their cars. The dispossessed owner can earn their cars back, fully paid, if they correctly answer three out of five trivia questions.
Of course, Cyrus believes there may be a bigger monster at play here than Disney: He relates an anecdote about how the Cyrus clan—fresh from a group baptism in their wholesome hometown of Franklin, Tennessee—arrived in Hollywood and immediately came across a sign on the Los Angeles freeway that read, “ADOPT-A-HIGHWAY, ATHEISTS UNITED.” In Cyrus’ words, it was “a physical sign. It could have easily said ‘You will now be attacked by Satan.’ ‘Entering this industry, you are now on the highway to darkness.’” As to whether he thinks that means his family is now under the crooked thumb of Old Scratch himself, Cyrus says, “I think we are right now. No doubt. There’s no doubt about it,” adding, “There has always been a battle between good and evil.”
Atheists cleaning a highway. Satan’s really been phoning it lately, huh?
